Kehillat Yedidya (קהילת ידידיה) in Jerusalem, Israel

Breastfeeding in the Sanctuary:

It may or may not be permitted, but is not comfortable to try.

Nursing Locations:

There is no separate space for breastfeeding privately.  Many woen nurse in the lobby.

Other Breastfeeding Experiences:

“The community seemed supportive and there were many nursing women in my time there. However, we always seemed to be on the chairs in the entryways.”  Breastfeeding during programs (i.e. panels, speakers, events) is fine.

There is no information/signage visible about breastfeeding policies either in the synagogue or its website or bulletin.

General  Child Friendliness:

There are no changing tables.  “There is a sign to not bring strollers into the sanctuary, but there isn’t really adequate space to store/park them anywhere.” (However, there s a ramp into the building.) There is no particular space for children’s supplies.

Kids are totally welcome in the main service.


This synagogue received a  general rating of: “Okay, it is just workable enough- 4” out of 7, where 1 was the best rating and 7 was the worst.
